Ah... Ok. Actually in that case there is a problem with the Dutch translation
of the validator. The error message I got was "U heeft geen kleur voor uw
achtergrondkleur opgegeven", which translates "You didn't give a color for
your backgroundcolor". So I believed there was a problem with the value of
the backgroundcolor.
OTOH I can't directly think of a less ambiguous tranlation of the english
error message. Literal translation (and valid Dutch) would be "U hebt geen
kleur bij uw achtergrondkleur". I'm still not sure I would've interpreted
that correctly though.
